How old is old?
Just a comment on perspective. I recently returned from Europe and was being given a tour of the village my father grew up in in central Italy. My 93 year old uncle showed me the local church that held at least 40 parishioners. In my very weak Italian I asked him how old is this church? I thought he said 700 years old. I replyed wow, 700 years old that's amazing! He said no not 700 years old 700 AD.
Our old houses in North America are new places in Europe.
